in the fourth quarter. presumably to get ahead of higher dividend taxes if the fiscal cliff deal is not out. right now, dividend taxes are at 15%. if we go over the fiscal cliff, they could go up to 44%. today several more companies jumped into the pool, including satellite tv provider dish. what's interesting with many like dish, for example, even if you don't own the stock, you have until december 14th to buy it and still git that special dividend paid out two weeks later. should you be jumping in? should you buy a stock just to capture that dividend? cnbc contributor ron says it's tough to pull off. ron s this a smart strategy for investors to pursue? what's your take? >> i expect large i traders can do these things more efficiently than individuals. back in the 1980s japanese investors got special treatment for dividend payments. it was well better than what they got for capital gains. they used to engage in strategy called dividend rolling or dividend capture strategies where they would buy the stock one day before it went ex dividend, captured it, sold the stock later. i would

, in fact, just 27 days away from that fiscal cliff. did anything happen today to bring us closer to a deal? let's get the facts. eamon javers on capitol hill now with the story. >> reporter: hi, the story up here on capitol hill, speaker of the house john boehner facing a bit of a brush fire on the right here. senator jim de mint calling the proposal an $800 billion tax hike earlier today. saying that's going to allow washington to continue to spend money here on capitol hill. that's been met with a little bit of interest here in the halls of congress because that's a sign that republican conservatives are not entirely thrilled with the speaker's proposal to the president of the united states. it brings up the question of how much the speaker can actually negotiate with the president and how much his hands are going to be tied by dealing with his own conservative caucus here on the hill. talking with those republican members today, it seems like the speaker still has the upper hand. that's going to narrow some of the running room that the speaker has going forward. very, very dicey situation for
